    Video: “HEMLOCK GROVE” gives us a werewolf transformation to be excited about

    Produced and shepherded by Eli Roth (who also directed the pilot), HEMLOCK GROVE sees a small Pennsylvania steel town thrown into disarray from a murder whose culprit seems less than human. As the trailers have noted, this all comes with a somewhat warped sensibility that sees soapy trysts, class warfare and werewolves along the way. The latter is the focus here today, as WonderCon (and now you) got an exclusive look at the upcoming series’ painful, skin-peeling transformation.

    Shots of Jaeger: Meet the latest “PACIFIC RIM” mechs

    In gearing up for a July release and this weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, Guillermo del Toro’s latest has a very active social media campaign. This week, the official Facebook has been introducing would-be fans and those who’re very much anticipating the monsters vs. mechs opus to Earth’s last saviors, the Jaegers. Up for a good look is America’s Gipsy Danger (who we’ve only seen in blueprint form), Australia’s Striker Eureka, China’s Crimson Typhoon and Russia’s Cherno Alpha, who looks crushing.

    From writer Travis Beacham and the no-intro-necessary del Toro, PACIFIC RIM is the story of kaiju risen from the sea and the team of tough ass jaegers man has assembled to take them down. The movie is out July 12th in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D, all of which I plan to attend at some point.

    “ROOM 237” (Movie Review)

    Maybe you hold onto one yourself? Some pet theory about a particular film’s hidden patterns, symbolism, subtext or allegory? Undertones that fly past most viewers but, once uncovered and analysed, cannot be ignored? ROOM 237 (in select theaters and on VOD today) is a unique and deceptively simple documentary that features five different people attempting to explain what they perceive to be the true meaning behind Stanley Kubrick’s film of THE SHINING.

    The YOU’RE NEXT trailer is here!

    Excitedly rejuvenating home-invasion by simply being both frightening and a hell of a lot fun, the long-awaited YOU’RE NEXT is almost  out. This trailer is the first many will see of the movie and once the mayhem kicks in, does a great job of nailing the hotly-paced, thrilling, big grin-inducing good time this film is. It is also majorly funny, but hopefully you’ll discover that in the theater.

    YOU’RE NEXT stars AJ Bowen (whose film THE SIGNAL also used Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day,” before having to change), Joe Swanberg, Barbara Crampton, Amy Seimetz, Nicholas Tucci and Rob Moran as the Davisons, whose family reunion is murderously interrupted by the aforementioned animals. “An unlikely guest of the family (an amazing Sharni Vinson), however, proves to be the most talented killer of all.”

    YOU’RE NEXT is out August 23. You can find our very excited review here, and keep an eye on Fango for more from the film in the coming months. [iTunes premiered]

    Trailer: Hideo Nakata finds old school eerie in “THE COMPLEX”

    Has your nostalgia for J-horror kicked in yet? After the likes of Hideo Nakata’s RINGU and DARK WATER, Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s KAIRO (PULSE) and more ushered in a new wave of international terror, the influence was far-reaching—from stylistic flourish to the era of the remake—and eventually tired many fans out. Now, Nakata is seemingly returning to his roots as his latest, THE COMPLEX, prepares to play the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival. Its trailer is like an old friend.

    “DARK BLOOD” (Movie Review)

    “If you want something enough, you must will it. If you’re obsessed enough, you will get the object of your desire.”

    So declares a tortured desert eccentric named Boy—portrayed by a fiery River Phoenix in his final screen role—to the pair of marooned Hollywood jetsetters he’s holding captive in a pivotal scene from DARK BLOOD, but the character might as well have been whispering through the celluloid ether to director George Sluizer, who recently (and with an effort that can only be described as herculean) plucked the film from the purgatory of fractional incompleteness in which it has lingered unseen for twenty years and made it a (qualified) whole.
